New Temporary Cell Tower in Exeter

 Will cell service actually be possible in Exeter?  

Arriving in Exeter Monday afternoon was the first temporary cell tower. Although the Verizon tower is temporary, Verizon does plan to build a permanent tower on the east side of the Exeter school football field. The tower will be activated in a few days as power had not been connected to the site yet.

 In November, Jerry Carpenter, a representative of U.S.Cellular spoke to the Fillmore County Board of Supervisors about placing a new tower along Highway 6 just a few miles out of Exeter.  The Fillmore County Planning Commission held a hearing, Monday, December 20th and the Supervisors will hold a hearing on Tuesday, December 28th to approve the U.S. Cellular tower.
